Course: Pilot Bay to Karewa return
Karewa is located 14km North West from Pilot Bay & directly north east off the shore of Matakana. Karewa was traditionally used to harvest mutton bird, & in 1878 the steamer "Taranaki" ran into the island in which its remnants a large boiler from the ships engines remain on the Northern side. The islands beauty is enhanced by the abundant marine life, large boulders with flat edges and a sandy bottom. SO.......Stand by for the new Hoe Aroha challenge to you keen paddlers!
